Hot Pursuit (PG-13)
Directed by: Anne Fletcher
Starring: Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon, Richard T. Jones
The pitch: A by-the-book Texas police officer goes on the run with a mob wife she’s assigned to protect. The pair must find a way to stay alive despite threats from hired killers and dirty cops.
The formula: Lock up moments from “Bird on a Wire.” Take a statement from “White Chicks.” Throw the book at “Modern Family.”
Go see it: If you lost a horrible bet.
Don’t go see it: If you have something more important to do, like take out the trash.
Should she be worried?: This movie is bad enough the Motion Picture Academy might re-consider giving Reese Witherspoon an Oscar.
